This is marked N5 on the case for a 1975 watch.  It has an 11AOACD 17j , 1974 (N4)movement. I just edited all this. I'm not sure where most of that former info came from. It is another watch I was posting but somehow a lot of info got crossed. I will leave this info for the 1975 watch and post the 1970 later. Sorry for the confusion!

Additional Information: 

Hello, please find attached the pictures of my Bulova watch. I have not been able to identify my models from those being presented at this site. 

A note on the date 1969: In order to fill out the form I had to specify a manufacture year. I have no idea in which year my watch has been manufactured, which is why I typed in "1969" just to be able to save the watch and upload the pictures. I hope that you can help me to find out the correct manfuacture year.

On the dial following information can be found:

"Bulova
Automatic
23 Jewels
T Swiss T" (reference to tritium?)
The outer backcase has the following number stamped on it: 1-773595|
The crown has a "Bulova" relief.

As to the watch´s background: I bought it from a flea market in Germany in 1995. The watch has not been opened ever since, but it still works immediately and with high accuracy. Since I do not have the right tools and there is no watchmaker where I live, I unfortunately can´t show you any pictures from the movement and the inside backcase. This is really all the information that I can give you.

I am not interested in selling the watch. I am looking forward to every bit of information that you could share with me. Thank you very much in advance.

1970 McLeans Magazine advert running the Golden Clipper series and with the Stainless Steel 11616 model shown on the right.  I note old advert texts are sometimes difficult to read and easily be misread, but my clear copy image of the advert shows it’s definitely 11616.

Believe this to be a 1970 Golden Clipper L. Looks great, and keeps time like a soldier. Not sure if the band is original, but it suits the watch fine.
